Hot-And-Sour Soup Sandwich
This isn’t your average twist on takeout: Hot and sour soup and tofu reach new heights when they’re combined and set up like a French dip, and that’s not even the best part. The mushrooms are the star of the show here, taking on soy, star anise, chili, and vinegar like the little fungal sponges that they are—they’re almost like hot and sour soup bon bons, when you think about it. Seriously, even if you don't make the whole sandwich, at least make the mushrooms. The rest of the sandwich is mild, to complement the mushrooms, but when you dip it in the jus, it comes alive. You’ll have more than enough mushrooms for the sandwich, so save the extras and transform pizza, salad, or whatever else you like.
